The Post-Crisis Global Economy: Prospects for Recovery and Reform

Tuesday, April 13
5:00 – 6:30 p.m.
1310 Grainger Hall
The event is free, but registration is required.

As the global economy emerges from the worst economic and financial crisis since the Great Depression, attention has shifted toward the prospects for recovery, as well as the need for reform of the policies and institutions governing international finance. What are the growth prospects for the U.S. and the world economy in the coming years? Have the underlying causes of the global crisis been addressed? What are the barriers to domestic regulatory reform and international cooperation that would avert another crisis?

Join a distinguished panel of speakers, including Jeffry Frieden, Stanfield professor of International Peace, Department of Government, Harvard University; Menzie Chinn, professor of Economics and Public Affairs; and Michael Knetter, Albert O. Nicholas dean, Wisconsin School of Business, for a discussion of pressing questions facing the global and U.S. economies in the aftermath of the crisis. Moderated by Mark Copelovitch, assistant professor of Political Science & Public Affairs.

The program is organized by the Center for World Affairs and the Global Economy (WAGE) and the Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER), sponsored by the UW–Madison Division of International Studies and the Wisconsin School of Business, and co-sponsored by the Department of Political Science, and the La Follette School of Public Affairs.
